ASSESSMENT SUPPORT

Assessment is an ongoing process that uses the results from measured outcomes to improve programs and operations. In 1994, UCF established a goal that all academic and administrative units would develop mission statements, objectives, and at least three outcome measures to assess and improve programs, operations, and services. Today, every academic program and administrative unit at UCF is actively engaged in an assessment process. Assessment is conducted in response to many external drivers (e.g., Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Criteria for Accreditation, NCATE, AACSB, and ABET) and most importantly the internal drive to improve.

The UCF assessment process that is conducted in response to SACSCOC is the Institutional Effectiveness process. As part of this process all of the assessment plans and results undergo an annual review by Divisional Review Committees and the University Assessment Committee (UAC).

The OEAS office provides workshops, consultations, and direct support to academic programs and administrative units in designing and analyzing surveys, developing and implementing assessment plans, conducting analyses of processes, and preparing for accreditation site visits. The OEAS office also provides administrative support for the UAC and designs and maintains the Assessment web site that archives all academic program and administrative unit assessment plans. OEAS facilitates the CQI submission and review process.
